Editors' Review

+

Wondershare PDF Editor allows modifications to text, graphics, watermarks, digital signatures, and pretty much any attribute of a PDF document. It performs conversions between PDFs and hundreds of other file types, including popular Microsoft Office files.

Pros

Extensive editing: Wondershare PDF Editor looks and feels like a proper editor, with straightforward ribbon-type menus and access to any element for modification, deletion, or new entry. We particularly enjoyed editing embedded graphics and being able to manage file pages in every detail.

File conversion quality: Very good work has been done to ensure faithful conversions between different file types. We successfully converted PDF embedded tables into Excel spreadsheets to take advantage of the latter's calculation prowess.

Document management: Watermarks, digital signatures, and document restriction control from a single summary menu all attest to a powerful editor, good for any level of personal or corporate work.

Cons

Lack of PDF file creation: For such a powerful app, it's a pity that PDF file creation is omitted. This single feature would make Wondershare's app a truly one-stop solution for PDF documents.

Separate OCR plugin: In typical freeware marketing fashion, OCR functionality comes in a separate paid plug-in and is not even included in the editor's paid version.

Bottom Line

Wondershare PDF Editor makes a favorable impression, being a thoughtfully designed and very capable PDF editor. It interfaces accurately with many popular file types and comes with all the file management features required for corporate use. The purchasing price of $59.95 puts it in a very competitive market position.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Wondershare PDF Editor 3.6.3.

"Works in general fine, with a few flaws"

September 17, 2015  |  By soz1

 |  Version: Wondershare PDFelement 5.6.2

Pros

PDFelement is a collection of PDF utilities including an editor.PDF´s are either merged scanned image files or "generic" files printed via a printer driver. The program handels both types well, extracting pages, merging PDF´s, converting to misc. file formats, creating PDF´s from images / Office files as well as creating PDF´s from scratch with forms, text, images, radio buttons etc.(File -> New -> Blank).
Handling of "generic" PDF´s is almost flawless converting brochures, timetables to almost exact Office formats, editing such files also unproblematic.
Scanned PDF´s is by OCR copied to an editable copy where OCR simultaneously in more than one language is possible.The result of processing a French document with German references was very accurate.Beforefore converting such a document to Word it was for me necessary to remove hidden objects (backgrounds?) from
pages (easily done) to get a decent result.

Cons

The produced docx files load slow in my Office 2003 triggering Word to check formatting of the document first.By unticking a couple of options in Word this problem was solved (I do not remember how).
OCR under the Edit tab works fine, while enabeling OCR under the Convert tab without first editing out hidden objects was not that good.
Processing large scanned documents the program has a tendency to crash.

Summary

All in one tool with a lot of great functions.Nice interface.Will create PDF´s from scratch.Flaws will hopefully be corrected as time go by.Wondershare offer free lifetime upgrades.

"Constantly crashing, asking for password but wont accep"

July 09, 2015  |  By woodlands98

2015-07-09 23:15:22  |  By woodlands98

 |  Version: Wondershare PDFelement 5.5.1

Pros

Too angry at the hours wasted to think of any

Cons

Constantly crashing, often won't open a document - wants a password for a document that has no password and won't accept Wondershare password. Put a review on Wondershare's website and it never showed up. And having to have a password to use a piece of software - really. Have repeatedly asked for a refund but never had a response to that request.

Summary

Look elsewhere. Not at Wondershare.

 |  Version: Wondershare PDFelement 5.1.1

Pros

I could download it from here - only good thing....

Cons

But than, ugly enormous mark /water-sign/ ended up on all of my 50 PDF doc pages! And I couldn't get it removed unless I buy it. I am so dissatisfied with this!

Summary

I would never ever give my money for such a fraud, they force you to buy it.

"best pdf editor"

January 06, 2015  |  By Liuhaii

2015-01-06 21:53:08  |  By Liuhaii

 |  Version: Wondershare PDF Editor 3.9.11

Pros

Most wonderful application and easy to use

Cons

It can be better.

Summary

I love it. Especially the converter. It\'s much better than Avanquest Expert PDF Pro 9. The UI is much nicer than Adobe. Soda PDF and Nitro PDF editors seem to have lots of icons, but Wondershare actually has the same features in a much smaller application. Wonderful job!
